Again with the Fog

Mussel Rock, Pacifica, 12 mph SW. Fog at 500 feet.

I set up on the north side of Walker ramp, partway down to avoid the rotor from Walker ridge. Took off facing west and promptly turned left into the wind. Easily gained height along Walker ridge and exploited some particularly lifty spots just south of launch. Toodled around (an aviation term) the Walker and Steps area for about 20 minutes, pulling big ears when I got too high into the cloud.

Landed on the top, back road, on the curve so I would be facing the wind and have a runway.

0:26 Mussel Rock (Walker), reverse launch.
